    How do Quoddy Boat Shoes and Bluchers fit? true to size? Or would you recommending going down 1/2 to account for stretching?

    I figure if I'm a 10US in Clarks Desert Boots (which is a 1/2 size down from my true size), I should go for a 10US in the Quoddy's too...

    Any thoughts?



    Well I wear a 12 in most, including sperrys, and my size 12 quoddy bluchers fit fantastic. I am sure that it will stretch out a little bit, but I don't think sizing down is necessary. As for getting them wet, I dunno, the pair I have in black feels very heavily oiled, I definitely wouldn't try to wear them through water or anything like boatshoes, the moccasin uppers aren't treated for it.

    Quality is so good and the burgundy and navy are so beautiful.

    I'm waiting for the navy unlined version to come in since the current ones are a bit thick around the ankle.


    Are the navy and burgundy versions limited to South Willard?

    I don't see them on the other sites [​IMG] .

    Well, this thread just cost me $150. I've been on the hunt for some good navy boat shoes. Never could find any of the Sperry ones in stock around here and didn't feel motivated enough to order them. Tried on some Sebago ones but was unimpressed with the quality compared to my brown Sperrys. Then I saw that South Willard had the Quoddy ones in my size and I just couldn't pass it up. Hopefully I'll have them by the weekend.

    The only boat shoes I own are some navy canvas sperrys, which I like because they're very low volume. I've been eyeing Quoddy for a while, but haven't pulled the trigger because I'm just not sure I'll be able to wear the things year-round. However, the bluchers might be a bit more versatile in that sense.

    bump for an answer

    any other stores besides SW carry navy and/or burgundy boat shoes? or is it just black and brown everywhere else?

    Just bought the Quoddy brown bluchers from South Willard. These are just what I have been looking for. Casual rubber soled shoe that's not a boat, sneaker, or boot.

    haven't seen the navy ones anywhere but SW, most likely made just for them by quoddy. Call up quoddy and ask them, they are extremely nice and could possibly even make you a pair if they have some extra leather lying around.

    SW didn't have my size in the navy so I order them direct from Quoddy. Took a couple months to get them but I'd say they're worth it. Very well made.

    Does anyone have pics of the burgundy boat shoe? I'm curious to see what these look like. Is it a dark, almost-brown burgundy, or something brighter?

    Received my black blutchers from South Willard last week. Along with my 5EPs and Engineered Garments outerwear, they are in the category of "must be seen in person to fully appreciate".

    They're perfect, pretty much like oxblood.

    I'm kinda interested in the ring boots.

    Other thoughts? How do they look in person?

    I got my bluchers today, and damn, they are awesome. The leather is extremely soft, they are probably the most comfortable shoes right out of the box I've ever worn (I walked 2 miles in these today and felt great), and the color is amazing. The brown has definite hints of red and an amazing texture. What should I do to take care of these?

    They're pretty cool, very unique in person. I think they would look great with denim, might try them on if I go down there this weekend. The rings are a nice touch.
